Anne Rice's Wintry Wolf Tale Print

Jacket cover of Anne Rice's Anne Rice, who celebrates her 72nd birthday today (October 4th), returns this month with the second installment in the Wolf Gift Chronicles, The Wolves of Midwinter. Readers catch up with new werewolf Reuben Golding and his family of shapeshifters, a unique and cultured group dedicated to using their "wolf gift" to protect innocent humans rather than maul them. Set on the appropriately gray and moody coast of northern California, Rice's new novel is not the typical fantasy-adventure--instead the story hinges on family drama and the ever-complicated nature of romantic entanglements. The first book in this series, The Wolf Gift, was a bestseller, and readers are expected to flock once again to the latest offering from Rice, still the leader of the pack in supernatural fiction.
